Our current study aims to study the effect of different metallic mordantson the new natural dyes that we were able to extract in a previous study. The extent to which the intensity of color is affected by the presence of metallic mordantshave been studied and also the effect of the concentration of each mordant on the natural dyes was investigated, and then the changes that took place on the color axes were screened, and then the fastness of the new dyes were studied after applying them to the woolen fabric
